Self-Driving Ford Fusion Hybrids Are Delivering Domino's Pizza in Michigan This Month

The future is finally here—self-driving cars are on real roads, interacting with real customers. And Michiganians get to be part of it, being the first in the world to receive Domino's pizza deliveries from an autonomous Ford Fusion Hybrid.

Some Michiganians get to be involved, anyway. Tawas pizza-lovers won't be seeing self-driving Ford sedans on our streets in the near future. The research project will be limited to customers in Ann Arbor, half a state away.

While we may be a bit disappointed, we're still excited to see Ford putting their self-driving vehicles into action. The company has promised to have high-level autonomous models on the market by 2021, so we're closing in on the deadline fast!

Ford doesn't expect to be selling autonomous vehicles to private individuals when they first launch. Instead, Ford is focusing on self-driving taxis, and possibly, food delivery.

"As we increase our understanding of the business opportunity for self-driving vehicles to support the movement of people and goods, we're pleased to have Domino's join us in this important part of the development process," said Sherif Marakby, Ford Vice President, Autonomous and Electric Vehicles.
